Rhaphidophora hayi is an unusual shingling aroid from tropical Asia with oval dark green foliage. Shingling is a growth habit in which a climbing plant's foliage lies flat against a tree, rather than fanning outwards. Our Rhaphidophora hayi are rooted in soil and allowed to begin shingling up a cedar board. As they climb, the foliage will continue to grow larger, and, provided sufficient humidity, to lie flat against its climbing surface.
• Light: Bright, indirect light
• Water: Water when the top 1-2" of soil feels dry
• Considerations: Incorporate a taller board or moss pole when repotting so your plant can continue to climb. High humidity encourages continued shingling
